Well, this might be pretty confusing, as one might expect this flag (--sourcelist) to list the
sources of a package, rather than the source-package paths.

I expected this behavior from `makepkg --packagelist`:

[ruben at i3 brave-bin]$ makepkg --source --packagelist
[ruben at i3 brave-bin]$ makepkg --packagelist

So no new flag, just a different output when --source or --allsource is set, too.

Best regards,
